SciTech Band,

a place to overcome the impossible


     Building a quality band in Springfield MA, a city with the sixth highest child poverty rate in the United States is said to have been impossible. Fortunately, the SciTech Band has found that nothing is impossible to overcome when students become leaders and take ownership in the classroom. Since January of 2007, the SciTech Band has grown from 20 students to over 500. Perhaps more importantly, the odds of staying in school are three times higher for students who join the band for more than one year.
